The National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) has completed the installation of nine Tsunami Sirens along the Suva Peninsula and will be conducting live tests on the Tsunami Sirens today from 10 am to 1 pm.

The sirens have an acoustic range of 1.2 kilometres. The Tsunami sirens are newly installed in the following areas:

  • Water Authority of Fiji – Kinoya Sewerage Plant
  • FINTEL – Vatuwaqa
  • RFMF Officers Training School – Vatuwaqa
  • My Suva Picnic Park
  • Government Training Centre – Nasese
  • I Taukei Lands Trust Board Rooftop- Nasova
  • Civic Carpark Rooftop – Suva
  • Government Shipping Services – Walu Bay
  • USP lower campus
  • Lami town

The National Disaster Management Office advices members of the public living along the vicinity of the above mentioned areas to not be alarmed because these are just tests.

The siren testing is also an advantageous way of getting accustomed to the sound, which would help enormously in an event of a Tsunami Threat that warrants evacuation.

The public is further advised to contact the National Disaster Management Office on email neocfiji@gmail.com or telephone 3313400 for any issues arising from the siren testing.
